Photography: Moorcroft Wood

Moorcroft Enviroment centre

I went to Moorcroft Wood on Sunday. I’m finding nature photography and landscapes a little boring, but buildings are still quite interesting. This is Moorcroft Environment Centre on the edge of the wood. Read the rest of this page »

The sun is shining this morning and it could be a good day for photography. I will be doing some indoor photography early this evening. I’m going to photograph Acoustic Alliance who will be playing at the Vine in Darlaston from 6 – 8pm. Read the rest of this page »

The Review: Does art need to reach out?

I’ve started with one of my more artistic pictures today. I’m thinking of visiting an art gallery this weekend.

The Sunday Ramble: The alternative Nobel prizes

Bike on Tipton Canal

It’s Tipton canal and community festival this weekend. I haven’t heard how it’s going, but I’ll try and take photos of it this afternoon. It should be just down the canal from where this picture was taken; I think boats are mooring overnight at the rear of the health centre. I have new readers today, so I’ll make an effort.

It’s Tipton canal and community festival this weekend. I’m going to try to get there tomorrow. I am trying to publicise local events and businesses using my writing and photography, so I don’t want to miss this one. Read the rest of this page »

The Sunday Ramble: Last days of summer

1 Summer

It’s only a week now to the Autumnal equinox and the beginning of Autumn. We have cloudy days even in summer in England and so it won’t be that much different when I’m out taking photographs, just a lot colder and very bleak. Read the rest of this page »
